  1. I just bought a used Brinkmann smoker and don't know haow to use it. It has a bowl on the bottom and 1 in the middle and the rack on top. I don't know what to do with any of it. Advise ?

    Probably not as old as this one:



    Around 30 years old



    Concentrate on just the top rack to start.
    Get an internal digital meat probe with 3 foot cord at Wal-Mart
    Never fill the water pan full. 3/4 at best, less for short smokes
    Cold weather use playbox sand, cover with a sheet of foil to catch drips
    Do some mods on it.

    Also, remember to watch the smoke



    Good smoke on right, bad smoke on left

    Might need a bit more info. Please give some more details about the brinkman so we know what model you are using.
